This isn’t a slam or anything. It’s actually a fair assessment on Buster Olney’s part. But it’s not exactly the sort of way we’re used to hearing guys like Manny Ramirez described:
Heard this: The Yankees have no interest in signing Manny Ramirez … if the Yankees were comfortable with having a oft-injured, right-handed DH/OF type for their bench, they’d probably just re-sign Marcus Thames.
Hey Orioles: sign Manny, put him at DH, move your birther to first base and watch Manny get comeback player of the year award votes. It’ll happen. I just know it.
